Earlier in the week, Lia and I decided to put her fabulous apron from Arty apple through its paces. There’s nothing better than chocolate to test out an apron and with Easter coming up we thought we’d make Easter egg nests. When I was browsing Pinterest, I found this healthy chocolate recipe from Eats Amazing. We decided we’d give this a go and make healthy Easter egg nests. And I have to say, it was a resounding success! Here’s the video of how we did it and the written recipe is below. Healthy Easter egg nests – Ingredients Coconut oil (100g) Cocoa…

I can’t believe last week was half term, it seems like we’ve been back into the routine for ages. Not long enough to be organised though of course.

This combined one of the girls’ favourite places with their favourite book. After that we headed to Wagamama for lunch.…

Many years ago, my husband bought a rusty old camper van on eBay. In all honesty, he’d got over-excited by the prospect of travel freedom and didn’t put a lot of thought into the purchase. By the time we had Libby, we had a choice between scrapping it or putting in an extra seat so we could all use it. We took it to my cousin who is a mechanic and asked if it was worth saving. He laughed. So the van went, we bought a sensible family car and our camper van adventure went on hold. But when we bought the rust-bucket, it…
